The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Brewers have scored six runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Brewers have won four of their last five games when scoring more than three runs. Adam Lind leads Milwaukee with 53 hits and 31 RBI while Ryan Braun and Carlos Gomez have combined for 64 RBI. The Milwaukee Brewers have lost five of their last six home games. Matt Garza takes the hill, and he’s 4-7 with a 5.09 ERA and 49 strikeouts this season. Garza is 0-3 with a 7.33 ERA and 31 strikeouts in his career against the Nationals.
The Nationals are 10-3 in their last 13 games as a road favorite and 5-1 in Roarks last 6 starts. The Brewers are 4-0 in their last 4 games as an underdog and 1-4 in Garzas last 5 home starts. The Nationals are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Milwaukee and 7-3 in the last 10 meetings overall.
It's only a matter of time before the Nats wake up and start playing consistent ball, and it might as well start against a Brewers team that's capable of really stinking it up. I like Washington in this spot.
